STEP 1
Appointment of Authorized Agent VARDIKOS & VARDIKOS

Applications for citizenship cannot be submitted directly and must only be handled by an Authorized Agent. An “authorized agent” acts on behalf of the main applicant in relation to a citizenship by investment application.

STEP 2
Applicant’s Authorized Agent provides him / her with assistance in preparing the documentation for submission.

Applicant must complete the official forms, attend a medical examination and obtain certain supporting documents, all of which need to be submitted in English and with the appropriate legalization.

For purchasing property, this will need to be reserved through a sale and purchase agreement at this point.

STEP 3
When all of Applicant’s forms are complete, the Agent will submit the application to Dominica competent Authority and will liaise to all correspondence, queries or questions on the file that may arise.

STEP 4
The application will be vetted through a thorough due diligence background check which will verify the information that Applicant has provided.

The Dominica competent Authority will consider the file in the light of the due diligence report and will take a decision about the application.

The applicant will receive a letter through the authorized agent who will inform the Applicant whether the application has been successful, has been delayed for further processing or has been rejected.

STEP 5
If the application is successful, then the Applicant will receive a letter instructing them to make the investment payment (for the Government Fund option) or to complete the payment of the real estate property.

Upon receiving proof of the payment, the Authority will issue a certificate of registration which will be able to be used by the agent to apply for a Dominican passport.

The Applicant/Agent is entirely responsible for the securing of passports.

No government officer or department is responsible for applying for passports for any individual.
